Two Fer Tuesday

Two Fer Tuesday is Jonna's great idea.
Pay her a visit to see her fascinating entry, and for links to other participants.

If you feel like joining in, the rules are simple:

Two fer Tuesday is easy. You just have to post about a pair of photos that have a theme, like Autumn, cars, a trip. The theme can be of your choosing. The theme may be direct or implied. You must explain how they are related, if implied. You must post at least 2. If you must post more than 2, they must be in pairs.

This week I'm trying to fit my posts into our local Festival.
Visitors of all kinds come from all over, and the streets are packed.

This visitor came on slightly different transport - a Lambretta scooter with a sidecar attached!
He's left his jacket draped artistically over the convenient coat hanger provided by the handlebars.
This second photo shows how small the scooter is compared with the car behind which it's parked.
I would not like to meet one of the big lorries while riding this!
The poor thing has seen better days, but it's still running.
It's a travelling museum-piece!

I don't think the seating is much lower than with our old Jawa sidecar but the scoot itself is certainly lower than the 350.

My Uncle had a motorcycle with a sidecar. It was such fun to go for a ride. His Harley was a little larger than this one. Perhaps it is in less than perfect shape from being blown around on the road. Nice post!

This would be very much at home in Bridlington!

I was thinking of getting a little scooter but they really are little.

That is a time piece.
Do you remember Bubble cars???

I think I would feel way to vulnerable in one of those!!

It is tiny, kinda like our Ford Fiesta. He probably spends much less of gas than those driving cars.
Driving a piece of history and saving gas at the same time. You can't beat that!

They should paint a dragon face on the front.

It's such a long time since I've seen a scooter and sidecar. Never been on a scooter or motorbike though SCARY!!!!

Decapitation springs to mind.

It is, indeed, a museum piece. Quite a pretty one, at that.

Its the front-mounted leather jacket I like, as if that makes it look a little "tougher".

This is my wheels..
